ATTENTION! This review contains some strong language and (obviously) spoilers from the 18th episode of season 7 of Pretty Little Liars. You have been warned!
Okay so, I’m back from episode 18. And I’m really upset because I saw a spoiler while on twitter. I managed not to read any spoilers during these past few months, and of course I did it on the third to last episode. Anyway, let’s get into it!
Already from “the previously on” I know that there’s going to be Toby in this episode because when they bring back into the “previously on” characters I haven’t been in the show for a while, it means they are on the episode. And this upsets me quite a lot: I WANT THE ELEMENT OF SURPRISE!!
Speaking of people who are back, Ali is in the house!!!
It still feels weird for Emily and Ali to be together as I was so used to Emily and Paige and I shipped them so much. I wish they would have stayed together.
And now the police have search warrants for the girl’s flats. At least Marco hasn’t appeared yet I would’ve been so fucking pissed. But he’s not longer on the case!
The police woman who used to investigate all the cases related to the girls is back. Marco is gone I’m so happy I don’t want to see your stupid face anymore.
Aria as the villain is something that I really can’t get behind of. It just seems innatural and forced. And so close to the end of the serie, depicting her as in evil character is absurd. I’ve said this before and I will continue saying this until the end of the show (in two weeks): RIDICULOUS.
So then Emily and Alice and tell their friends live been sleeping together and that they are actually a couple. And there is literally no reaction. NOTHING.
One of the craziest thing that happened is that Mona barged into the room and told the girls but I has been working with A.D. .
She had a couple of episodes to say this and she decided that this was the best time? I think everything is happening very very quickly and they could have spread it across the season and deleted all of that bullshit that they put in those “filler” episodes.
But my favourite thing in this ep is definitely Toby’s appearance. He looks like a poor and trashy version of a real man like Nick Offerman.
Ezra is finally getting suspicious about Aria’s behaviour. WAKE UP, MAN!
Thinking of meeting with A.D., Aria goes to a hidden location in the middle of the wood but instead of the person who has been terrorising them for ages, she finds her friends who have set her up. Obviously, they get really really angry and Spencer and the conversation with “we’re done”.
Anyway, she tells her friends the reason she has been working with A.D. It’s because when they found out about Ezra’s book about Alison, she wanted to get back at him so she filed a police report saying that she had been taken advantage of. Isn’t that stupid? She is now marrying the guy she filled in a police report about. Of course the police is going to be suspicious! This show amazes me every single time!
But they are called back to the police station where Detective Tanner (see?! I remembered her name) shows them a piece of glass from the windshield of Archer’s (ICYMI, it’s Alison’s dead husband) car. And this piece of evidence has blood on it.
They are definitely in big trouble…
At the beginning of the episode, A.D. sent the girls a phone with a countdown clock. We don’t know what that means, we don’t know what the countdown stands for. It is actually frustrating. I hate it.
But let’s not forget what I’m most looking forward to find out. I want to know who the baby daddy is! Why can’t they just tell us!?
Now Spencer is confronting Aria for all the bullshit that she did. I was expecting so much drama but they don’t yell at each other, they don’t say anything. But then Detective Tanner comes in and gives back all of Aria’s belongings to her and of course, Spencer is pissed.
Wait! Now she’s telling Ezra what she did and he knows about the report? He’s not angry? Why aren’t they fighting! I just want them to lash out at each other so bad.
Everybody stop everything that you’re doing: Hannah and Caleb are getting married. Like, right now. And now Mrs Marin is here! It’s sooo cute! I can’t believe it but I am actually happy about this. I’m so glad they’re getting married without a pompous Ceremony. No white gown, no cutesy lovey-dovey shit, no stupid vows…
Exactly the opposite of the following scene with Alison and Emily.
But wait, the romantic shit is not over yet. Spencer went to Toby’s cabin for whatever reason. I just can’t look at him with that beard. It’s really really ridiculous. Getting together in this episode means they have literally no morals. He has just lost his fiancée in a car crash that he was driving. And now she’s pulling moves on him. Yes, they are smooching. No wait everybody is smooching and having sex. Why? Literally everybody!!! Not a fan of this scene.
Except the Hannah and Caleb part, because that is actually very very cute… 😍😍
Time is running out! The countdown is about to hit zero and I can’t wait to see what happens next.
But Spencer smashed the phone! Is she stupid?!
And Aria is now volunteering to turn herself into the police and committing a murder? But now A.D. tells her that she has limited freedom and that she has won the game?
Oh look! A Samsung galaxy has exploded!
Who is in her trunk?! ARCHER?! And now she’s been pulled over by the police? I am loving this so much.
So is Mona actually the villain? Is she A.D.? Because frankly I don’t believe it.
The trash is back, baby! I’m not a huge fan of this half of the season. There is so much stuff we should be worrying about and instead the writers are focusing on bullshit nobody cares about. (See: Yvonne).
What are A,D.’s motives? Where are Aria’s parents? Don’t they have jobs they have to get back to? What about Lucas and Hannah’s fashion firm? There are so many questions!!! And only 2 episodes left!
Hope you’ve enjoyed this long review and please let me know of any other trashy show I should watch because I am in need of some bad television.
